Famous quotes containing the words waves and/or strong:
“With these I would be.
And with water: the waves coming forward, without cessation,
The waves, altered by sand-bars, beds of kelp, miscellaneous
Topped by cross-winds, tugged at by sinuous undercurrents
The tide rustling in, sliding between the ridges of stone,
The tongues of water, creeping in, quietly.”
—Theodore Roethke (19081963)
“We can only proselytize fresh meat, putrid meat begins to have strong convictions of its own.”
—Samuel Butler (18351902)
